November new image Showcase for AuroraWings

OOOH, goody!  It's the November Aurora Wings Showcase and just in time for the holidays Mitzi, has added four new Angel Sprites.  There are three little guys, each with his own instrument, and a special little girl sure to melt your heart.

First off we have Harp Angel Sprite.  The harp, to me, is the quintessential instrument of the angels so I used the golds and silvers of the heavens to color with Copics and gel pens.  I'm not sure why, but for some reason I flipped him when printing.  The background and sentiment are cut with glitter paper and I used a filigree die from Just Right on the music paper because it reminded me of a harp.  "Joy" is from the Joy Banner from Poppystamps.  The layers are popped with foam and I've used corner stickers and additional stars to round out the design.

Next we have Trumpet Angel Sprite.  His holly crown led me to choose traditional Christmas colors, papers and motifs for a very different feel.  Again, I've colored with Copics and gold gel pen and fussy cut and popped this cutie.  The lovely holly border die is from Sue Wilson Creative Expressions.  The layers are popped with foam and I've used some flat back beads and corner stickers.  The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

Finally we have Lute Angel Sprite and again I've gone with a different style. I guess the fact that the lute is made of wood made me go with a more rustic theme this time.  The lovely die sentiment is part of the Holiday Shadowbox set from Sizzix.  I've colored Lute Angel Sprite in warm Copic tones to give the feeling of a country Christmas.

I'm entering this in the Double "D" challenges What is your Christmas style?  (I've pretty much got them all covered in this post (and in my house), but this one is "country/rustic",  the Outlawz Saturday Paper ala Mode Rustic Challenge

The original plan, (as far as we knew at the time) was the three musical Sprites, but Mitzi managed one more beauty for this, our last Showcase of 2019.  Here is Peace Angel Sprite with an olive branch crown, holding her precious dove.  I knew immediately that I wanted to color her in serene blues and silvers and set her against a snowy background.  The large oval dies are Spellbinders Grands and I've used the Star Flourish from Memory Box behind her and cut and layered the Peace sentiment from Tim Holtz 4 times.

I've also used clear Wink of Stella on her wings and lace and some silver and clear on the dove itself for sparkle, but it's very hard to photograph.  Can you see it?

You'd be amazed at how different and versatile these new Angel Sprites can be depending upon the coloring and style.  Be sure to visit the AW Showcase Blog to check out the beautiful work by my teamies.

Nope, I couldn't resist!  Had to color her IMMEDIATELY because she just begged to be a redhead.  LOL  You know you want her!  And remember, the codes are good for all digital stamp listings in both shops.
